Brant leaves Essex
Brant, 21, was born in Zimbabwe, but he has now settled in Queensland, Australia. He took 49 first-class wickets in his two summers at Essex with his left-arm fast-medium. "I have had two fantastic summers in England so far," he said in a statement, "but feel that if I was to play county cricket next year, it would only be for part of the season. I fully understand Essex require a player who can commit for the whole season and would like to thank them for the understanding they have shown in this matter."
David East, Essex's chief executive, said: "We thank Scott for his contributions over the last two years, and wish him well for the future."
